Virtual Visits

A number of the authors represented by Dayton Bookings have begun to do virtual online visits as well as in-person visits.  Online chats can offer options to more remote schools where the costs associated with an in-person visit might be prohibitive.  Virtual visits tend to be more conversational so please be sure that students/staff are prepared with questions for the author.

Authors will be happy to sign bookplates either ahead of time or after the chat, so students will still have the option to purchase signed books.

Just as with in-person visits, planning and preparation are very important.  Please let us know what kind of computer set-up you have so that we can prepare appropriately.  We normally arrange for a trial run prior to the actual visit so that everything will go smoothly.


For more information about virtual visits, please take a moment to read this article from School Library Journal:
You Are There: No budget for travel? Try video chat.
